1 A TOUCH OF LUXURY

Mega brands with local bases worth backing

FENDI

fendi.com

A handbag is the ultimate entree into the luxury fashion universe—and something Fendi does best. Its popular Peekaboo and Baguette styles are mainstays that come in myriad colours and sizes.

CARTIER

cartier.com.au

Yes, you can order Cartier’s fine jewellery and iconic watches to be safely delivered to your doorstep—a saviour if there’s a special anniversary or birthday looming. Just note: you won’t be able to return or exchange the piece if you’ve had it custom engraved.

GUCCI

gucci.com

Few top tier labels offer such an extensive online shopping experience, but Gucci leads the charge with a huge selection of its eclectic ready-to-wear apparel, accessories and beauty products, just one click away.

2 USE WISH LISTS TO AVOID IMPULSE BUYS

“I’ll add items to my wish list and sit on them for at least a week to think about it,” says market editor Lulu Custance. “Too often I’ve been swept up in the excitement of making a purchase only to regret it later.”

3 EVERYDAY HEROES

Pieces you’ll reach for time and time again

AJE

ajeworld.com.au

All style persuasions can get behind Aje, whether it’s for the leather miniskirts, classic denim or pretty puff-sleeve blouses. And while the brand’s aesthetic has mass appeal, it’s always underpinned by an elevated ease inspired by the laidback Australian lifestyle.

LEE MATHEWS

leemathews.com.au

If you’re searching for that perfect dress —the one that can be worn with sandals during the day, but dressed up in a snap for special occasions—make Lee Mathews your first port of call. Don’t blame us if you fall for everything else on their website, too.

ANNA QUAN

annaquan.com

What started as a reworked white shirt has expanded into an entire range of tailoring with a twist. The brand’s endlessly wearable blazers, bermuda shorts and wide-leg pants promise to effortlessly transform your work wardrobe and beyond.

4 SWEAT IT OUT

Activewear to supercharge your workout

P.E NATION

pe-nation.com

When it launched in 2016, P.E Nation offered a brave new proposition: activewear you’ll want to wear outside the gym. Think streetsmart shapes full of tomboy swagger.

THE UPSIDE

theupside.com

Not one for traditional sportswear graphics? From snakeskin to paisley print, The Upside is a must-visit for its standout selection of motifs, which also appear across its swim range.

NAGNATA

nagnata.com

Nagnata’s sustainable approach favours technical fabrics spun from certified-organic cotton and merino wool. The resulting pieces are oh-so chic, and perfect for your next Pilates class.

5 SWEET DREAMS

Loungewear that’s comfy and chic

JASMINE AND WILL

jasmineandwill.com

Jasmine and Will delivers all manner of sleepwear in an ultra-elevated package, from robes to classic pyjama sets. Pieces can be monogrammed on the front and back for a small fee, which is great for bridal gifting.

MONTE

montestore.com

There’s nothing more underrated than a good house shoe—which is what Monte prides itself on. Their regal velvet slippers will make you feel like the queen of your castle, and their leather soles can be worn outside worry-free.

PROJECT REM

theprojectrem.com

If cost per wear is an important consideration, know that Project REM is designed to double as daywear. Plus, for every sleep set sold, a bundle of sanitary products will be donated to disadvantaged women across Australia.

6 CONSCIOUS DESIGN

Consuming fashion thoughtfully

ARNSDORF

arnsdorf.com.au

Feted by industry insiders from day one, Arnsdorf offers everything from wear-forever suiting to elegant day dresses with a focus on quality and craftsmanship. The label eschews traditional fashion cycles and doesn’t discount its stock, but is completely transparent in the cost of producing each piece and will custom tailor its designs to you.
